yoga 260 LTE ram soldered

Q: yoga 260 LTE ram soldered

The LTE version of the yoga 260 is now available. I recntly tried to order one through campuspoint.de together with a RAM upgrade to 16GB. Upon trying to acctually do the upgrade the people at campuspoint.de noticed that, unlike in the non-LTE version, the RAM in the yoga 260 with LTE is actually soldered to the mainboard. My questions are: Is this true for all variants of the yoga 260 with LTE or is there also a variant with LTE and non-soldered ram?Is is possible to upgrade a non-LTE yoga 260 with non-soldered RAM with LTE (antenna, SIM slot,...)?

A: yoga 260 LTE ram soldered

Oh man.. this is bad news I wonder if structural issues such as the pen slot cracking have been looked at since we are obviously looking at some kind of revision of the chassis/mainboard?

Hi and thanks in advance for any answers. I read a comment somewhere that on the Omen 15 models that the factory installed RAM is soldered to the board. Is there any truth to this? I've never heard of this before, but it's been a long time since I cracked open a laptop. I'd really like to upgrade my new rig, but not sure I want to tackle something that is soldered to the board,

I want to upgrade my CPU but when I went in side the system and tried to removed it, it soldered to the MD. I couldn't remove it w/o causing damage, maybe I am doing something wrong?
My System information is here. I upgraded it from Windows Me to Windows Xp Home Professional, and the video card (which doesn't seem to work as well as the old ATI one)
Here we go: From the TSG SysInfo:
"Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.1
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1400MHz, x86 Family 15 Model 0 Stepping 7

Can I upgrade the HD from a IDE to a SATA with a Mother Board Addaptor? (Data cable)
Thank you.

Okay is it true that most computers Dell,Acer,Gateway,HP,Soney,Toshiba,IBM and Compaq the hardware is soldered to stop upgrading.

And they no longer give you the operating system CD or driver CD? You have to get the CD from them? If you get a Compaq with XP or Vista loaded you have to get the CD from them?

No drivers.

What happen to the old days if you want to get new computer parts or be upgrading you have to go with them? Like you get a Compaq computer and want to get new RAM or Hard-drive you have to go with them?

I just got a new GTX 560ti graphics card and I'm ready to install it into my ASUS Essentio CM1630 but when I went to take out the metal slot coverings on the expansion ports, I was disappointed to see that they are solder in place at 3 different points. I looked for everything, a button, a screw a lever, to release these but the only thing holding them in place is the solder. Is there something im missing? If not, how can I remove these? Thanks a bunch!

You just have to break them off, they should move fairly easily with the aid of a screw driver or needle nose pliers in one direction and then just bend/wiggle it loose.

I bought a HP 350 G1 laptop in order to use the mSATA slot. My surprise was when i wanted to install the SSD in the slot, I saw that the slot was not even soldered on the motherboard altought the mSATA "word" is there. I saw in the manual that the models with Intel processor have the support for mSATA and the ones with AMD processor don't support mSATA. I have Intel I5 processor but as I said the mSATA slot is missing. Please someone who has this model to take a look at the slot to see if is there, and please an HP moderator to help me with this problem. The model is in the picture attached. Thank you.

When I opened my tower I noticed 2 of the 4 Northbridge retainer clips are no longer soldered to motherboard and Northbridge heat sink is not seated properly. It still works.

About 6 months ago Replaced XP with 7 OEM . Lately it's been shutting down unexpectedly. So we ordered 2 more gigs of memory thinking that would help.
Would it be OK to resolder and continue using or has damage been done? If it weren't OEM version I'd try to get it transferred to new motherboard with Core 2 Duo and DDR3 memory.

Another way for Dell to rip me off? Their support claimed a HDD failure via onboard diagnostic, so I replaced the drive, tried to reinstall Win 8 via the recovery USB they sold me for $40 and it gets stuck at asking for the product key. The kicker: Dell has no access to the key b/c it's soldered onto the mobo they say. Now they claim a mobo failure, since it's out of warranty, and will send a tech out for $399 to replace it. I've never heard of any company soldering the win key to anything. Is this true or false? Since there is no OS, is there any way to get they key or am I dead in the water?

Hello. I'm getting an error message about the date and time not being stored on a Dell Latitude D800 laptop. As a first attempt to alleviate this problem I am going to replace the CMOS battery. I opened the covers on the bottom of the laptop but don't see the battery. I tried to take the shell off but haven't been successful yet.

Before I go further do you know if the CMOS battery is soldered to the motherboard? (If so, this may be a nonstarter for me.)

Thanks for your help!
 

A:Is Dell Latitude D800 CMOS battery soldered to motherboard?

the bottom of a laptop case doesn't give you access to the CMOS battery.

You have to pop the frame off from the top. Be gentle. It is tricky and you can break it if you don't know what you're doing.

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

Hey guys, I'm a PreMed student who's life revolves around his laptop. I'm always on social media, watching some show, listening to music, doing an essay, taking notes, updating some website, or emailing some person on campus. Of course, my old laptop broke. It was a Dell Inspiron. Now, I have a campus job and have been saving money(so money is not factor necessarily). After researching my options, I've narrowed my choices down to the three previously listed laptops. I just want to know which do you guys suggest and why?

By looking at your requirement, you prefer on-the-go PC that lets you do all that on a decent budget, SP4 is better than SB(if you want lightweight device and decent battery life), Lenovo's are pretty good too. X1 w/o OLED seems to be a better buy in terms of ultraportability and battery life. You could wait for others to chime in.

I have two staff members with different Yoga models, but with the same pen issue. Say, for instance, OneNote is open. The pen doesn't draw or write, but it can select and still be recognized. When I try using an old stylus from an HP Elitebook, it works TOTALLY fine - even the button on the pen functions properly. This suddenly started after months of the Lenovo pens working fine. I thought maybe it was a driver issue, but it can't be as the HP pen works.... I'm thinking it's the pen itself just getting worn down? It looks okay though but may be just a little loose...

Hello, we got 2x Try-and-Buy Lenovo Yoga Tablet Laptops (an X1 Yoga and a Yoga 260) to evaluate their suitability for our company, since we intend to upgrade several of our employees laptops. However, ever since we got the devices we noticed on both of them frequent issues with the display and waking from sleep. Very often the laptops won't wake up properly with the screen staying black. In those cases the display-backlight seems to turn on, and I assume the system is running somehow in the background. Putting the computer to sleep again (e.g. by closing the lid) makes the computer wake up properly on the second attempt. Different error in the same category is when a video is running and the laptop is connected to AC - plugging out the AC cord made the screen go black while the media content's sound kept playing. All drivers were updated to the newest version via Lenovo System Update 5.07.0029. Any ideas? I also tried to open a support ticket, but Lenovo wanted to send and install a new display (!). Apparently, that seems like a driver/software issue?! Best regards

So three weeks ago, I was working on my Yoga 3 14" and popped to get a drink, I came back and the screen was blank, I assumed it had gone to sleep, so hit a key to wake it up. Nothing! The laptop was plugged in, so I know it hadn't run out of charge.After sheer panic, I contacted Lenovo, who told me that my warranty was out by a month, and that I could send it to them to diagnose, and they would tell me how much to fix, then it was up to me if they did or not.One I wouldn't be happy about not having my laptop for a couple of weeks minimum, but also it had all my private information on.I turned to good old google, and stumbled across this forum, and somebody with the same problem.Their solution was to unscrew the back case of the laptop (as mentioned above, my warranty was already out), remove the battery cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and reconnect the battery cable.I did this, and low and behold it worked. Fantastic!Only for it to happen twice more that week, and approx twice a week since. Then yesterday my brother contacts me saying his laptop has died, just won't turn on. His is the Yoga 2 Pro, I told him to bring it to mine, and I would try what I had to do to mine, to his, low and behold, the same solution worked. Seeing as I wasn't the first person to have this issue, and I'm guessing others have used the solution but not commented, this is obviously a fault with the Yoga range. I'm hoping that Lenovo can address this issue, as I fe...

Excel 2016 is quirky and unreliable.  I've had two issues with keyboard responsiveness.  Driver reinstall fixed 90% of issue but still having issue with slow "R" button. I tried to back up my files on a jump drive before restoring back to factory settings (per Lenovo's suggestion), but all the files were corrupt when I tried to put back on the computer!!!  Jump drive is still working fine on my other computers. Touch screen is unreliable.  Sometimes websites scroll and respond fine.  Other times it won't scroll or respond to touch well. Overall, I'm very disappointed and frustrated with my Yoga 3 Pro.  I've spent half a day of my life with Lenovo support, and they are constantly telling me they only work on hardware issues so I don't get much help.  Is anybody else as frustrated as I am?  Please let me know if anyone either knows how to fix numerous performance issues or if they feel like they got a lemon too.

My 2-month-old Yoga 3 just died. While running on battery (54%) it just went black. The on/off button does nothing and plugging it in does nothing (no lights, no nothing). I am in Zurich (bought the unit in New York). I suppose I am under warranty. Where do I go for repair or replacement?

I thought a SSD was suppose to be quiet...well my yoga 900 fan seems to be running quite a lot and there is a high pitch squeal to it (quietish high pitch squeal but still annoying).  How do I know if this is a return issue or something typical? Has anyone else had this problem? Returning a computer is a huge pain so I dont' want to do this just in case.  Only want to return it if something is indeed wrong with it.   

A:Yoga 900 - fan noise

I hear the fan kicking on when I'm playing games or rendering videos, otherwise, its basically silent. Also when charging, I hear it kick on. Check your background processes, might have something running. Also, make sure you're not on high performance mode.

I just got my Yoga 900 two days ago. I love it so far, everything seems to be working great and I was nervous some of the other reviews said the trackpad was bad and honesstly the only complaint I have is the small shift key... but hopefully I can train my fingeers differently.  I am posting this because of an issue I am having with the keyboard and typing. I am seeing double letterss when I am typing and Im leaving themm in the post so you can see how often it happens. I am not a heavy typer by anymeans and it happens simotanously as the letter is typed.  I have installed the BIOS and driver updates with the lenovo app and also updated my windows 10 completly. The trackpad update really fixed alot of scrolling issues and hopefully another one can fix these double letters. Itss not the hardware in the keyboard right? Hopefully not because I llove this computer.  Anyone else having these issues???

Hello. For the last few weeks, I have been dealing with an issue of my Yoga 13 sometimes not waking up after I have put it into sleep mode.  I sort of ignored, as my system is out of the warranty period and I cannot afford a full-cost repair.  Today, it would not wake up from sleep mode, so as usual, I did a hard restart (holding the power button until the system turned off and then after a minute or so, powering it on normally).  This time, the hard restart did not work.  When I powered the system on, the power and caps lock, and battery lights/buttons turn on momentarily and the fan turns on, but then they all go off.  Usually after that, the power light will come back on intermittenly, along with the fan, and then go off after a while.  This will continue like this almost indefinitely. Nothing will ever show in the screen.  The battery seems to charge just fine, as the battery light recognizes whether or not the charger is plugged in and the system had a low battery light when this started earlier today, but has since charged, from having it plugged in.  I have tried the Novo button - it does the same thing as a regular power on.  I have tried these options while having the system plugged in or unplugged.  I am really stumped here and would appreciate any thoughts on what this could be.  I have seen lots of other, somewhat similar forum threads, but there is usually a detail or two that are different. I really hop...

A:Yoga 13 will not boot up

By the way, I just got off the phone with Lenovo tech support. They had me go through resetting the system several times and trying the Novo button, but since the caps lock button does not work, they said that this is most likely the Motherboard, CPU, or the LCD screen. Any thoughts on how I can narrow it down to which it might be?

I've had it for a bit under a month, and apart from an occasionally sketchy touchscreen for the first week or so, it's been perfect.  I have a crazy job where I'm in a different location at least every week, sometimes every day, and my duties vary from teaching to materials creation to curriculum development to programming to IT. Unfortunately, I got home last night, and it wouldn't turn on.  Fine; I figured that maybe the battery was dead.  Plugged it in, and still no joy, but hey, I figured maybe it wouldn't start until it hit a certain minimum charge level (a la many smartphones).  So I left it charging overnight, packed it when I went to work this morning, got here, and... it still won't start. Indicators/symptoms: The only I/O that appears to be working is the charge indicator (the small circular light next to the power button) and the power button light. If I plug in the power, the small circular light stays on (white) until I unplug it. Plugging in the power also sometimes causes the power light to turn on (again, white), and it will stay on (regardless of whether it's plugged in) until I force power-off via holding the power button. Nothing else works/responds.  The fans do not turn on, the caps lock light does not light up, the keyboard backlight can not be turned on.  Nothing.  As far as I can tell, the computer isn't even on -- only the power light.  I have tried every hotkey (and other key) on t...

Welcome to the forums!
 
In the past, if no cleaning compounds have worked, I've resorted to using a melamine pad and warm water to take it off the surface. As it is abrasive, you have to be aware that it's not recommended to do this often. However, if you have an oily layer built up, this'll take care of it!

After 2 months, checked mulitiple reviews and feedbacks, I bought the X1 yoga to replace my X230 (yeah?) Apperance-wise , I can't complain, really, this is exactly what I'm looking for. battery life ain't bad, with comfortable setting, I have roughly 9 hrs (OMG!) With/without external power, I ran the FFXIV benchmark, the score isn't bad as well. So why I start this post? because the SSD, somehow , I can feel the system is lagging because some whatever reason, and I use my laptop to do still image raw editing ... from the point import the files to the laptop, I can see the transfer rate is only about 60MB/s (at home my primary system, can do minimum 130~140MB/s, with same card reader attach to USB3.0) So what happened ? such great laptop came with a crappy SSD ? looked up online, this SSD with write speed up to 140MB/s ? WTH ? I thought 100~140MB/s are the speed for those aged 7.2k rpm traditional HDD ? Well, should I be glad I only order the 128GB module, because the built your own charge $300~400 for 500GB SSD upgrade, and I just bought one from Crucial , the MX200 500GB M.2 2280 cost $150 ? (and with 3 years warranty) I can't blame the whole laptop, but Lenovo should pick a better parts , especially storage is quite important as part of this laptop, isn't it ? thanks

I've been getting the dreaded blue screen of death with the memory management error for a while now and knowing the RAM is soldered on I figured there was nothing I could do about it, shutting the computer off once a day seemed to help but if I'm using it for a full day then it crashes. Today I had a new one which was the BSoD and the pfn_list_corrupt error so I ran the memory diagnostic and it came back with a hardware problem with the memory, now I suspected that this was the issue with the memory management errors but now this seems to confirm it. So what are my options, just put up with it? It seems there's no real fix but aside from the annoyance of crashes and restarts which for now I can just about live with, is this going to ultimately kill my yoga or not? This along with the wifi problem (thankfully switching that out fixed it) pretty much means this will be the last lenovo product in this household. If I can get another year out of it then I won't feel quite as bad about buying it....BTW is the Pro short for problematic?

A:RAM replacement or fix for a Yoga 2 Pro?

Hi, No one should have to put up with a computer that is not working correctly.If your computer is in warranty do activate it.If not, and assuming the cause is a bad memory chip, you could explore a really invase alternative that is to replace the memory chips. This will requisite advanced eletronics knowledg, a BGA soldering station and new chips. AS you can guess this will not be easy and should be done by a professional. Or you could ask Lenovo for a repair quote.If everything else fails, new computer  Are your shure it's a hardware memory problem? Have you tried restoring to a factory image? Tried playing around with drivers?

just ordered my "loaded" P40 and plan to test it against a Surface Pro 4 i7. I bet the decision of which one to keep will come down to screen quality (Surface Pro) vs keyboard quality and hopefully better thermal design (P40). my usual testing involves doing a semi-complex filtered render video in Premiere. In thin laptops whenever the GPU kicks in, the computer under powers the CPU to keep temperature down. hopefully P40 handles it well. I draw some comfort there are very few P40 posts here.  As a side note, I think lenovo could improve their website sale process a lot; ordering a "topseller" or suggested confg and have to wait 3-5 business days for shipment seems excessive. Microsoft, Apple and many other offer next business day.

Hello there, people of the Land of Lenovo. Today I come knocking your door looking for some help with my Yoga 3-1470 (80JH). Here's what's happening. The fan won't run. At all. I first noticed it becuase the fans run at full speed for roughly a second at startup everytime. This time, it didn't. Then, the OneKey Optimizer has the Dust Cleaning option that runs everyday, but running that makes no noise. None whatsoever. No amount of restarting has helped. The fans don't run on battery power nor when plugged in. I've tried changing socket and all. Updated the BIOS, too, which made no difference. Tracking the temperature on SpeedFan, it's clearly noticeable that there's something wrong. The ambient room temperature is always between 21 - 24 degrees C, but the computer goes up to the mid-40s when browsing Chrome even, where it used to sit in the mid-20s. The strange thing is that it's completely quiet. There has however started a new strange noise, sort of like a rapid and consistent subdued yet sharp series of clicks. It happens around the same times I'm guessing a fan would run, but maybe I'm wrong. What is even weirder is that when the fan is told to run, by say, OKO, it doesn't even always make this strange clicking. I'm aware it could be a hardware issue, but I need to make sure that it isn't anything else.



Have a good day.

No problem here --- yet that drive still isn't recognized by my Lenovo Bios. Second, I purchased a 512GB mSATA SSD, the Samsung PM841-512GB mSATA SSD, the exact model number listed in the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Hardware Maintance Manual (pdf), but this drive isn't recognized by my BIOS either, even though this drive also works fine inside my external mSATA SSD enclosure. Third, I installed a 128GB mSATA SSD into my Yoga 2 Pro and it's immediately recognized.When I switch back to the 256GB mSATA SSD that came with my Yoga 2 Pro, of course it's still recognized and works just fine. Product Name: Lenovo Yoga 2 ProBios Version: 76CN31WW (seems to be most current version)EC Version: 76EC25WW (why doesn't embedded controller version match BIOS version?)CPU: Intel(r) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPUSystem Memory: 8192MBHard Disk: Unrecognized (when I use 512GB or 1TB mSATA SSD)Windows License: STD I've isolated that it's not a bad SSD, and it's not a problem with the way the SSD is installed.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me.I read this article:http://www.howtogeek.com/177376/not-all-tablet-styluses-are-equal-capacitive-wacom-and-bluetooth-exp...As i figured Lenovo Yoga 510 has a different touchscreen (no wacom technology, no digitizer?) than f.e. Yoga 460, which is much more expensive. Is that correct? Is that why I can not use f.e. the ThinkPad Stylus? Or was the employee right and it doesen't matter?if not, is there any kind of alternative for the Yoga 510 apart from the cheap pens with the thick tip? I want something that is somewhat precise. I saw pens with a battery that appear to be capacitive by generating a small electromagnetic field like your finger but have a thin tip. Are these the only alternative for Yoga 510? Does the pen for Lenovo Think Pad definitely not work? What about the pens that comunicate via bluetooth mentioned in the article? Could they be an alternative for the Yoga 510?If there is no real solution for Yoga 510 and there was a Lenovo Laptop with a similar price than Yoga 510, with similar performance and with digitizer I would consider changing mine but from what I saw the notebooks with digitizer are either much more expensive (like Yoga 460) or have a lower performance (like yoga book) is that correct?Thank you very much.

Just bought the Lenovo Yoga 710-14isk 80ty --- THIS FAN NEVER SHUTS OFF! I saved all this money for a fan that not only doesn't shut off, but I cannot Skype clients or conduct a webinar because the fan noise interferes with the microphone. I've tried EVERYTHING. Scouting these forums ... updated drivers ... nothing. Still the same. I'm ready to send it back. I'd appreciate someone from Lenovo replying to this with a *solution*!!!! Please don't repeat the malware mantra. Everyone knows it is not malware. Lenovo has a horrible design and engineering issue, and it must be resolved. Please reply or I'm about to take this to the executive team with some serious letters, as well as moving to the consumer protection path.

I've replaced the palmrest in my Yoga 2 13" Pro. It was necessery to take out the motherboard and other parts. After I did it and assembled all the parts back, one of the fans started to work not properely. It worked pretty noisy and unevely, not regulary (the second one worked fine). I dissasembled all the parts  again and assembled back, but without any change. So I bought another set of the fans (brand new). But after fans change, problem still exists. What can it be? Anybody can suggest where can I found the reason?
